About Casa Latino
Casa Latino was created in 2005 based upon the premise that Hispanic homebuyers and sellers have unique needs based upon cultural differences and lifestyles, bolstered by the fact that those needs are not being effectively served by any other national brand. The company offers franchisees unprecedented culturally specific and significant back office support, training, marketing tools, advertising, coaching, and much more to ensure their success. The franchise model encourages a variety of agent compensation programs, which dramatically enhance a broker's ability to recruit agents. The low franchise fee and an exceptionally low transaction-based royalty structure make Casa Latino an extremely attractive opportunity. Casa Latino has awarded franchises in several states and is executing an aggressive growth plan in the USA and many other countries. More information can be found at http://www.casalatino.com/.
